A MAN has been granted bail after being charged in connection with an alleged knife attack in Dublin at the weekend.

Aidan Dorney, 45, with an address at of Vergemount Court, Clonskeagh, Dublin 6, is charged with producing two knives during a dispute and assault causing harm to Niall Clancy.

The incident is alleged to have occurred outside the defendant's home on Saturday.

Following his arrest he was brought to appear at Dublin District Court on Monday where Judge Michael Walsh noted that there was no objection to bail subject to him obeying a number of conditions.

He was ordered to stay away from the complainant and not to have any contact with him or his family, directly or indirectly and to stay away from his address in Goatstown, Dublin 14.

He was told he would have to notify gardai of any change of address and to sign on daily at Donnybrook Garda station three days a week.

Defence solicitor Yvonne Bambury told the court that the alleged injured party went to the accused's home in the early hours of the morning.

The court heard that directions from the DPP were required which could take some time because there may be further charges arising.

Dressed in a blue jumper and navy jeans he said "That's perfect” when told he would have to appear again in January at the same court.

Free legal aid was granted after the judge noted that Mr Dorney was unemployed.
